Midnight by Sister Soulja
Published by Pocket Star 2010
Midnight is a hustler-but one with a mindset and a mission. A tall, dark, and handsome hero in his own way, Midnight would, in mainstream American society, be characterized as a threat and dismissed as a criminal. But in her beautiful, captivating style, Sister Souljah reveals the heart of a man that readers will love and cheer for until the very end. When Midnight came to America from the Sudan, he was just seven years old with a mother who spoke no English and a baby sister on the way. Midnight has to grow up fast on the violent and dangerous streets of Brooklyn. Amidst the poverty and lawlessness, Midnight must find some way to survive, thrive, and defend his family and way of life-no matter what it takes.
